    There are many different reasons why people like to take their motorcycles out on the race track. Some riders like to take the opportunity to hone their bike control, scratch their competitive itch or want ride as fast as possible without the limitations public roads have. Regardless of the reason, our team at KingsMotorcycleFairings.com are here to help you properly prepare for your first track day!

    What type of motorcycle do I need for the race track?

    Whether you have a cruiser, touring bike, sport bike, scooter, etc. they are all welcomed on the track. Although all bikes are welcomed on the track you're most likely to see the majority of riders bringing sport bikes such as Suzuki, HondaYamahaBMW, Ducati, Kawasaki, Aprilia & Triumph motorcycles. These sport bikes also require track fairing kits, that are customized to block out the front headlight & rear tail light ports and often times mould the rear tail section into a mono seat (removing the passenger seat).

    That being said, KingsMotorcycleFairings.com is one of the only companies that supplies quality track fairing kits designed specifically for the race track. If you're interested in a new race fairing kit for your motorcycle, simply email the Kings support team at Support@KingsMotorcycleFairings.com!

    Preparing your motorcycle

    Before following our general preparation guide, be sure to check the specific rules and regulations for the organization/track that you will be attending. Regulations are usually the same or very similar across the board, but it never hurts to double check.

  • Taping off lenses on your motorcycle
  • This is a more temporary solution to having a race track quality fairing kit. Taping your headlights, tail light and turn signals should all be taped up. We highly recommend using painters tape so that you are not damaging or leaving residue on your lights, fairings or any other parts of your bike the tape might touch!

  • Remove unneeded accessories
  • Riders will commonly forget to take off their cell phone mount, going at high speeds can cause vibrations thus leaving accessories subject to flying off. Certain organizations may ask you to safety wire down specific parts of your bike, so again it's always best to check with their regulations.

  • Remove your license plate
  • As well as removing unneeded accessories, your license plate is another item on your bike that can be subjected to flying off due to speed and vibrations. 

  • Tire pressure and treads
  • You’ll need at the very least 50 percent of your tires tread life to safely get through track day. Tire pressure can be a tricky one, every tire for a specific bike can be different. If you are unsure of the correct psi for your motorcycle, don't worry you can always ask tech inspection employees at the track for recommendations. 

  • Replacing coolant with water
  • Depending on the organization, they may have a regulation to replace your motorcycle's coolant with water. Coolant can become dangerous on the race track when it leaks, leaving slippery or slick areas that ultimately make the track hazardous for you and other riders.

    What do I need to bring?

  • Protective gear
  • Depending on the race track organization, the following requirements and regulations of motorcycle gear might vary. Most organizations require riders to have a full leather suit or a leather suit that zips together. You'll also want to wear boots that go over the ankle, gloves with full wrist coverage, as well as a fairly new full faced and damaged-free motorcycle helmet. We also highly recommend wearing a back protector, no matter the experience of the rider. Safety is always priority #1.

  • Beverages and food
  • Make sure to pack plenty of water and sport drinks that contain electrolytes to keep yourself hydrated. In addition to keeping yourself hydrated, you'll want to pack yourself meals and snacks for a long track day. It's always best to come prepared, given how spacious race tacks are, they are often located in rural areas that are far away from accessible grocery stores and restaurants.

  • Tools for adjustments
  • Bring spare duct tape and painters tape.  As well as your bike stand, extra gas, wrenches, tire gauge and any extra bike parts you may need.

    How to get your motorcycle to the race track

    There are multiple ways to get your bike to the race track. If you're on a tighter budget, you could always ride your motorcycle to the track as long as you can fit all of your supplies in a backpack or in storage cases on your bike. However, after being on the track all day, you can experience extreme fatigue making it a very difficult ride back home at the end of the day. Ideally, you'd want to have a truck or a trailer to bring your motorcycle and supplies in.

    We know it may seem overwhelming at first, however once you do it a couple of times it will become second nature! It never hurts to bring a biking buddy to help ease the anxiousness of heading to the track for the first time. Remember to be prepared, stay protected, study the course and familiarize yourself with the regulations of each race track organization you want to attend.
